Neuron EV, an electric vehicle startup with headquarters in Irvine CA, recently unveiled a collection of electric utility vehicles it claims has the potential to transform the automotive industry.
The new Neuron EV MET (Medium-Duty Electric Vehicle) and EV Star, a multipurpose micro truck, are convertible electric trucks built with an interchangeable rear end to optimize versatility, the company said.
The MET is a multi-functional vehicle with a range of applications for commercial use. Conceived to be a simple solution for the future of commercial trucking, it drives on a standard truck structure modified to integrate electric propulsion, Neuron claimed. The smooth yet strong cornered cabin optimizes interior spaciousness and aerodynamic flow to the rear architecture.
The rear of the MET is interchangeable, ensuring the vehicle is suitable for various functions such as urban logistics, sanitation, construction and mining, and the vehicle’s structure supports rigid and articulating truck frames, providing a flexible platform for commercial applications.
The STAR is a multipurpose micro truck Neuron says is set to disrupt the market by creating a new wave of electric car culture.
“When your purpose is clear, design becomes effortless,” said Kevin Lee, Neuron EV’s director of digital design. “Character is not something you fabricate. It’s innate from the foundation. Simple but complex.”
The company says the STAR is an urban eco truck that “radiates with fun personality,” while others describe it as a spaceship on wheels.
“I want to take this everywhere I go,” said Casey Hyun, Neuron’s branding specialist. “People carry their mobile devices everywhere because it empowers their lifestyle. We’ve lost that kind of car culture, and the STAR is Neuron’s way of making cars more enjoyable.”
